My work lies in moral, political, and legal philosophy, including the philosophical foundations of doctrinal law. I am particularly interested in the nature and methodology of normative theories; the relationship between the moral and the political, and its application to questions about the normative foundations of public, private, and criminal law; and the connections between democracy, authority, justice, and legitimacy.

I read philosophy at Oxford before working in privacy law in both public and private sectors. I studied law part-time in London, and then returned to Oxford for the BCL, MPhil and DPhil. I have previously taught law and legal philosophy at St Peter’s College and Worcester College, and political philosophy at the Blavatnik School of Government.
